Adrenaline Studio – Policies, Procedures, & Rules

Our Instructors, Coaches, Staff & Safety:

At Adrenaline Studio we are committed to providing a safe and fun environment where each student athlete is encouraged to progress at his/her own pace. In order to fulfill this commitment, we have taken necessary measures to ensure that we provide qualified and well trained instructors, coaches, and staff.

All of our Instructors, Coaches, and Staff go through full background checks. We use a background check service, as well as our instructors who teach our school programs are vetted through Fairfax Count Public Schools background checks and have a FCPS badge. All all star coaches are also vetted through the USASF Green Light Program and have Green Light Status to be a coach a Adrenaline.  The United States All Star Federation has taken important steps to ensure the highest level of safety within its member all star organizations. One of these steps is the implementation of a standardized approach to background screening for anyone age 18 or older who accompanies a team into a warm-up room at all USASF sanctioned events.  The United States All Star Federation partners with National Center for Safety Initiatives, through which they engage in a comprehensive Background Screening of our members.  This includes a comprehensive background screening program using NCSI’s Full Service product and a simple "Red Light/Green Light clearance report issued in accordance with the criteria chosen by The United States All Star Federation. 

We provide continuing education opportunities in athletic skills, life-skills, and coaches training to all of our instructors and coaches to help insure Adrenaline Studio stays up to date with all of the newest skills, techniques, and training.  This allows us to provide high quality instruction to all students.  All of our coaches work to be certified in their area of expertise through the USASF coaches certification program.  

While these standards will help ensure a safe environment at our facility, we must also ask parents and students to abide by our Rules and Policies:
